OSAAT #157 - Spring

Spring is the theme this week over at One Stitch at Time so please join us. I used the image Baby Gangstaz Toby by April of Reece's Scrap Pieces over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers before cutting with a Spellbinders grand nestie. I backed it with the larger size nestie in Papermill pale blue card. I love the backing paper which is sort of a greeny/grey check that I bought at a craft fair from Payper Box. I used Creative Expressions baker's twine to give some interest to the backing and then simply added a small Create and Craft 'dog' button. (Don't tell him but this card is for my son who breeds dogs.........................and he doesn't look a lot different from this Toby boy.) I generated the sentiment on the computer and cut it with Spellbinders dies. My card blank is by Joanna Sheen.

Check out the challenge blog for details of prizes.
